I have an undergraduate degree from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. My major was accountancy. In addition, I completed most of my premedical course work from U of I. I will be enrolled in medical school in August of 2013.
I tutored for two years at the University of Illinois in organic chemistry and accountancy. I have acquired cadaver tutoring when I tutored at Oakton Community College for a year in Anatomy & Physiology. For the past two years, I have been a private tutor and have worked with students aged 13 to 47. When I work with the younger students, I make sure to communicate their progress with their parents. Recently, I have worked closely with five high school math students to increase comprehension and grades resulting in an average of 1.2 point increase in GPA. I enjoy working effectively with students with diverse learning needs and cultural backgrounds.
My tutoring methods:
When I first meet a potential student, I do a diagnosis of their skills by creating a short test so I can determine what they have mastered, what they may need to review and what they don't yet know at all. Once I have assessed their skill level, I share that information with my student. While pointing out weaknesses may be easier, I believe it's important to motivate my student by showing their strengths as well. I always make it a point in my conversation with my students to keep them updated about their level or progress and to always end on a high note so they feel good about what they've accomplished so far.
I have also taken the LSAT as well as the MCAT and I can offer assistance to those students that are pursuing medicine or law school.
Please reach out to me and let me know what areas you need assistance with and I would be happy to explain complex concepts using easy-to-understand terms.
I have completed an entire sequence of Organic Chemistry (I&II) at the University level. Upon receiving excellent marks in both courses, my professor requested my tutoring services for his organic chemistry courses including elementary organic chemistry. I have tutored organic chemistry to university students as well as adults pursuing careers such as nursing and physician assistant.
I truly enjoy organic chemistry and I love working with students to improve their chemistry skills.
Here is a quick snapshot of the concepts and theories I have tutored and mastered -
Theories, structures, and reactions of organic chemistry, including the properties of various functional groups; bonding and structure of organic molecules; properties and reactions of aromatic and aliphatic hydrocarbons and alkyl halides;
stereochemistry; spectroscopy, including infrared and nuclear magnetic resonance; reaction intermediates and mechanisms such as nucleophilic substitutions and electrophilic additions; and multi-step organic synthesis.
Structure, nomenclature, properties and reactions of alcohols and phenols, aldehydes and ketones, carboxylic acids and their derivatives, amines, condensation reactions, polymers, and biomolecules.
